Antique Bulgarian Duck Carving This is an antique carving of a duck that I got during a trip to Bulgaria. It was handmade by a group of Artisans in less than 7 days. The efficiency of those men was amazing. I've never seen someone whittle something so quickly. It is made from a single block of wood and hand painted with natural oils. I paid $20
USD for it, but I feel that it is definitely worth several times that price. I have had a strange fascination with birds ever since I was a child and, when I had just gotten home from school one day, I walked upstairs in my home to find that there was a flock of birds in my room. I had forgotten to close my window before I left in the morning and they all must have flown in throughout the day. It was a wonderful experience. This carving makes me think of that moment in my childhood. Needless to say, my parents didn't like it very much.
